HOW TO MAKE THE CUTEST WREATH WITH PACKING PAPER IN A CHEWY BOX

Oh, this is one of my favorite repurpose projects ever. If you have spent one minute here at Everyday Edits you know I love a repurposed project. I wish I could say my family shares my enthusiasm.

Whenever my husband hauls out these boxes or the monthly Chewy box I haul it right back into the house.

REPURPOSE PROJECTS ARE IN MY DNA

I think I tap into my parents’ post-recession genes when I hoard random things like Bath & Body Works candles and cardboard packing material. I should state I am not a hoarder I just love the challenge to repurpose everyday objects.

CHECK OUT WHAT I MADE WITH THE PACKING PAPER IN A CHEWY BOX.

Recently when this Chewy box showed up I was more excited about the packaging material than the 24-pound bag of dog food for Chloe and Elliott.

This is what was in the corners of the cardboard shipping box.

I know right.

You can understand why my husband’s instincts were to toss it into the recycle bin.

He didn’t know.

What he was taking out to the recycle bin was craft gold.

Let’s take a look at how I took packing material from the inside of a Chewy box and made the cutest spring wreath.

HOW TO MAKE THE CUTEST PACKING PAPER WREATH FROM A CHEWY BOX

When I pulled the brown packing paper I instinctively started twisting the paper into the shape of a wreath.

I secured the ends with this wired jute from a dollar store. You could use chenille stems too.

This is where the magic of a repurpose project takes over. It just happened. Once the ends of my craft paper-shaped wreath were secured I knew this was going to be a great repurposed wreath.

The packing paper was the base of the spring wreath. The packing paper adds depth and a bit more dimension to the boxwood wreath.

I added a small boxwood wreath to layer in front of the brown paper. I have a stash of these small boxwood wreaths from this site.

The wreath was pulled together with blue gingham ribbon to create this adorable spring wreath.

I absolutely love this repurposed packing paper wreath! The gingham ribbon is perfect for my love of blue and green combinations.

I hung this on our interior facing door leading to our front deck off the family room.

I hope this inspires you to take a second look at the everyday objects we toss into the recycle bin. If you enjoy repurposed projects please check out my two favorites here and here.
